Edmonton came into the first game as the favorite, which was no surprise. The Oilers had a winning streak, plus they were playing at home. McDavid and Draisaitl could handle the game without any problems, but it ended in a 3-4 overtime loss. McDavid didn't score in the regular time, and Draisaitl did the double. But it wasn't enough either, as the Kings dramatically tied it in the final seconds and converted the extra point in overtime. Now Edmonton needed a win, as playing away at 0-2 in the series would be extremely difficult mentally.
Los Angeles, in turn, impressed us. Obviously, only some people believed in this team's success in the first game. After the second period, they were losing 0-2. In the third period, they threw three pucks, conceding only one. With 17 seconds before the final buzzer, the legendary Anze Kopitar scored on the power play. In overtime, Alex Iafallo also dotted down on the power play - a great result for the Kings. But it's still very early to relax - they need to continue in the same vein, which will be incredibly difficult against the evil Oilers.
Expect Betting Tips
We think the second game of the series will be successful for Edmonton. The Oilers will now want to return the favor for the last meeting, where they lost very offensively - expect a bright start to the fight. The McDavid squad knows that going to California at 0-2 in the series would be a verdict, so they need a win immediately. The team can achieve it, all the more so with the fans' support. All they need to do is pay attention to their net.
